I am having a problem with my PC shutting down when I select restart. To complicate things more it is only in the administrator profile. In the "limited user" profile everything works as expected.

Re: PC shuts down when I select restart
Here are a couple things you can try.
Edit the MSCONFIG Startup tab and Services Tab. Disable the entire startup tab, and HIDE ALL MICROSOFT SERVICES on the Services tab, then uncheck the rest. Reboot, then try a restart. If the problem goes away, then start adding items back one at a time till you identify the item causing the issue.
Updating the BIOS and Video driver are usually helpful.
You can also create a new profile with Admin rights and see if it works normally. Often, a profile will develop issues that are usually easier resolved by just creating a new profile, then moving data files to the new profile. (Never delete the old profile till you are absolutely sure there is nothing left in the profile you need.)
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Before shutting down your system click on any programs still running and shut them down. This will cut the time for normal shut down to take place.
You could also run a hard drive diagnostic to see if it has any errors. There might be some if you don't let the computer shut down itself. Restarting can also cause the programs to become corrupt, if they didn't shut down right. Running a defrag on the drive will also help it shut down quicker.
Look on the net also for information on getting your PC to shut down quicker.
Customize the Shut down button
The default action of the Start Menu's Shut down button is to turn
off your PC. If you want to use the button for another action, such as
restarting your PC, you click the arrow to the right of the Shut down
button and select an action from the drop-down menu.
What if you rarely shut your PC down completely but frequently
restart it? You can change the Shut down button's default action to be
Restart -- or Switch user, Log off, Lock, Sleep or Hibernate.
To change your default, right-click the Start button and select
Properties. On the Start Menu tab, click the "Power button action"
drop-down menu and select which action you want to be the default. Then
click OK, and OK again.
Hello, that commonly happens when you have a bad motherboard. As long as it does not load the desktop or operating system, then the motherboard is dead. What happened most recently? Did you shut down improperly?
Try pressing the <Ctrl> + <Alt> + <Del> keys together. If that doesn't work then the Asus Eee PC 900 user manual has this information: Click 'Instant Shutdown' and select an action from the dialog box. You can activate the task manager, put the system in standby, restart or shut down the system.
Hi Melimiti, You are not the only one with this problem. Cubase is quite a complicate software. If reinstalling does not help we need to have a CLEAN Install on a new OS. If the problem still persist contact the vendor for the product exchange.
Ok Gonna try and teach you some basic programming :-). What the following will do, is create you a Desktop Shutdown Icon, which when you double click on it, will hopefully shut down your PC rather then restart it. So here's how to do it :-).
1. Right click on your desktop and select new > shortcut. 2. In dialog box type “shutdown –s” 3. Click next to continue and then type a name for shortcut (IE Shut Down PC) and click finish.
Now you should see the shortcut on your desktop and will hopefully solve your problem.
The most common shut down problem is that the system will reboot rather than shutting down. In most cases, the reboot is triggered because Windows XP is designed to reboot after a critical failure. To stop windows from rebooting in case of a failure, you need to take the following steps:
Right click on My Computer, Select Properties, Click on advance tab, Click on Settings under Startup and Recovery, Uncheck the option Automatically Restart under System failure, Click Ok twice and try to shutdown the pc. If it shows any error code then let me know
That can be caused by a number of things , your best bet is to take a look @ this guide...since there are so many things it could be , this breaks it down to make it easier to figure out where it is coming from:
